Brief Synopsis of Film:
When a Hartford couple turns to psychiatry for help with their marriage in 1960, things quickly spiral out of control. Couples counseling, individual and group therapy and 24-hour marathon sessions ensue. Their four children suffer and are given their own psychiatrists. Pills are prescribed, people are institutionalized, shock-therapy is administered. This is an intimate story in the family's own words, from an extraordinary collection of audio recordings and home movies, illuminating a difficult and extraordinary time.
